Nutritional values

So much for "heavy pastries": prepared in this way, the pancake is a filling, but in contrast to the sweet, fat original, it is full of vitamins and nutrients! Especially the vitamins from the B group, which are so important for nerves and muscles, are abundant.

Once the wild garlic season is over, you don't have to do without this delicacy: It also tastes great with other herbs or young, finely chopped garlic! A fruity salad with raspberry dressing goes well with the ramsons.
